Perini Navi delivers 45m superyacht Clan VIII
by Malcolm MacLean
Clan VIII, the 45m sailing sloop launched on 6 September by Perini Navi, has now been delivered, the 53rd delivery from this eminent yard.
The result of a collaboration between Perini Navi’s Design Team and Ron Holland, she is the fourth of the steel-hulled 45-metre series delivered by the Perini Navi Group.
*Clan VIII *features all the hallmarks of Perini Navi yachts, including a spacious flybridge and an opening stern which reveals a structural staircase that descends to a seven square metre swimming platform.
The Perini Navi-built mast rises 52 metres above the waterline and the vessel carries an upwind sail area of almost 900 square metres. The centreboard gives the yacht a draught of 3.9m with the board up and 8.75m down.
Designed in-house by the Perini Navi Design Department, the interior of Clan VIII has a modern classic style combining ebony and teak to create an elegant marine ambiance.
